First of all I want to thank you for all the help
and good advices.
The reason why ./configure got out of tracks is:
I made PKG_CONFIG point -> sndfile.pc.
To be on the safe site I relocated the library
sources under /usr/local/ and recompiled them.
Finally after making PKG_CONFIG pointing -> pkg-config
executable sweep compiled and runs successfully.
It is the first time I compiled applications
For sake of space saving and easiness of removal
I symlink the files from they are installed by
'make install' to the source directories.
( some kind of my own "setup procedure" )
Doing the same for sweep and libraries which
were relocated under /AUDIO/ , sweep compiled
and runs fine.
Sweep's , executable and plugins
are symlink'ed from there "make install"
locations to /AUDIO/sweep-0.8.0 too
and sweep works fine.
great to see you've got it working, well done :)
if you're worried about disk space etc., you're better off doing
'make clean' after 'make install', rather than replacing the
installed files with symlinks.
this will leave the actual files in the system directories (/usr/local/bin
etc.) and remove the build files, which are no longer needed, from
the source directories. In addition to the program executable, many
other files like *.o files are created in the source directories during
compilation -- after a successful 'make install', these intermediate
files, and the copy of the executable in the source tree, can all be
safely removed with 'make clean'.
So, generally with source tarballs, the procedure is simply:
and you don't need to mess around with symlinks etc.
